Education

Dedicated student, eager to learn and excel in my academic studies

Mathematics GradDip

  • Institution: King’s College London - University of London, UK
  • Period: Sep 2017 - Aug 2018

During this 1-year mathematics graduate programme at KCL, I developed a strong and robust mathematical foundation for further studies and research in theoretical physics. Many of the technical skills I acquired here are highly transferable to other fields of applied mathematics and statistics. My mathematical intuition to interpret and build mathematical models for simple and complex systems was refined.

Physics BSc

  • Institution: Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
  • Classification: First Class Honours
  • Period: Sep 2013 - Jun 2017

Over the course of my degree, I was able to develop the intuition to identify relevant laws and principles and apply appropriate mathematical tools and approximations when working on advanced problems in physics. Throughout my Undergraduate studies, I developed several scientific computing projects, with a focus on data analysis, molecular dynamics, and simulations. The looooong hours spent in the lab exposed me to advanced experimental methods in collection of experimental data, and I gained experience in evaluating the significance of the data, drawing relevant conclusions, applying the appropriate mathematical methods and calculating the significant statistics (it was worth it after all!). I also got plenty of experience in communicating scientific information and producing clear and accurate scientific reports.

Intercultural Exchange Year

  • Institution: River Ridge High School, USA
  • Classification: 93% GPA
  • Period: Aug 2011 - May 2012

Took part in a 1-year exchange program (AFS - American Field Service) for my last year of secondary studies. Achieved top grades for mathematics, physics, and chemistry with scores ranging from 95% to 100%. Selected for a worldwide science and engineering competition (WYSE) where I won 1st place in the Physics examination.

Science & Technology High School Diploma

  • Institution: Escola Salesiana de Manique, Portugal
  • Classification: 80% GPA
  • Period: Sep 2008 - Jun 2011

Took the “Science & Technology” path for my secondary education, focussing on higher level science and mathematics. Scored 85% on the Physics & Chemistry national exam, placing me in the country’s top 3%.
